Seasonal Props

If you find out you're expecting or are due near a major holiday, take a photo with seasonal props as a unique way to tell everyone that you're pregnant. A little pumpkin for the fall, a mini stocking for Christmas or a baby chick for Easter or spring are all fun decorations.

Bump Ahead

Even the most subtle things can inspire a great pregnancy announcement. Working off the trendy "baby bump" phrase, this photographer put a "Bump Ahead" street sign to good use.

Extra Pair of Glasses

Take a unique trait about yourself or your family and incorporate it into your announcement! This photographer/writer (and new mom!) used a tiny pair of glasses in this adorable pregnancy announcement to break the good news. She and her husband both wear glasses, so the prop was the perfect way to personalize the image.

Get Your Pet Involved

Pets are part of the family, so why not include them in the fun? Make a sign for your fur baby (or babies!) or place some baby props in the frame of the shot to show that there's going to be an addition to the family.
